About the Event
Come along and unleash your creative self by making beautiful objects from pieces of paper. Learn a skill and have fun!
This workshop is FREE and CHILDREN are welcome!
Born in Homs in 1994, Azmi left Syria in 2013 to Jordan to avoid forced military conscription. While in Jordan he became involved in youth development programmes including working with Generation for Peace organisation using arts and sport to build peace between Jordanian and Syrian youths.
He taught himself origami using YouTube videos and meeting with some origami artists and friends. He came to the UK in 2017 and he now works as a Youth Engagement Worker with Chorley Youth Zone (Inspire). Azmi continues to use origami as a form of self-expression and to inspire young people that they can make amazing things from pieces of paper.
